The Ultimate Fighter 8 Finale Payouts and Bonuses

By:

Efrain Escudero and Ryan Bader walked off with The Ultimate Fighter 8 titles last night but they did not walk off with the most money.  That honor went to Anthony Johnson, whose impressive left high kick knockout of Kevin Burns earned him Knockout of the Night.  The kick will surely be on highlight reels for years to come.

Three of their TUF 8 teammates, Junie Browning, Dave Kaplan, and Krzysztof Soszynski, also walked off with bonuses.  Browning and Kaplan won $25,000 for their Fight of the Night which Browning ultimately won by Armbar.  Soszynski won Submission of the Night.  Soszynski worked a Kimura on Shane Primm that ultimately force Primm to tap out after sustaining what appeared to be a damaged shoulder.
